    Do the news reporters have the correct venue? This could not have happened in Philadelphia.

    Typical in Philly.. Mayor Nutter.. any idea yet how to “attack” crime? Certainly there are neighborhoods where the residents couldn’t care less.. not litter nor crime… Very sad how that city just continues to deteriorate.. Sad for those that care

    Is there ever a Non-Violent Night In Philadelphia?
